Understood, but we're talking about the default behaviour, and it seems clear that it should
be discouraging strongly coupled projects. If they are released together all the time, you're
much better off to put them in the same release unit and release in one move.

In that practice, it's probably best you use the versions plugin you've described as part
of your release process. I think integrating it into the release plugin is probably overkill.

Thanks for your contribution to the issues!
